Unveiling the Real Cost of Training Muay Thai in Thailand: Budgeting for Your Martial Arts Holiday.

Updated: Apr 8

Muay Thai has become a popular sport and fitness activity around the world. Many people take it up for its physical and mental benefits, as well as for self-defense. But for those who are serious about mastering the art of Muay Thai, there's no better place to train than in Thailand, the birthplace of this ancient martial art.

Muay Thai Fever now has it's own gym in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. Please contact us for more information.

A Muay Thai holiday in Thailand is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture and learn from some of the best trainers in the world. However, before embarking on this journey, it's important to understand the cost of living in Thailand, as it can have a significant impact on your overall expenses.

The first thing to consider is accommodation. Depending on where you're staying, accommodation costs can vary greatly. If you're looking for a budget option, you can find a simple room for as little as 300-500 Baht (approximately $10-15 USD) per night. However, if you're looking for more comfort and amenities, you can expect to pay anywhere from 1,000-2,500 Baht (approximately $30-75 USD) per night. Check out our blog post on accommodation here:

Next, you'll need to think about food. Thailand is known for its delicious and affordable street food, which is a great option for those on a budget. You can find a variety of dishes for as little as 30-50 Baht (approximately $1-2 USD) per meal. If you prefer to eat at restaurants, you can expect to pay anywhere from 100-500 Baht (approximately $3-15 USD) per meal, depending on the type of cuisine and location.

Transportation is also an important factor to consider. If you're staying in a city like Bangkok, you can use public transportation such as the BTS Skytrain or the MRT subway to get around. A one-way ticket costs around 20-40 Baht (approximately $0.60-1.20 USD). Taxis and tuk-tuks are also available, but they can be more expensive, especially during peak hours. Muay Thai Fever arranges training holidays where training accommodation and transport are all included.

Of course, the main expense of a Muay Thai holiday in Thailand is the training itself. Training fees vary depending on the gym and the length of your stay. On average, you can expect to pay around 400-1,000 Baht (approximately $12-30 USD) per session, or around 10,000-30,000 Baht (approximately $300-900 USD) per month for a training package that includes accommodation, food, and other amenities.

It's worth noting that some gyms offer discounts for longer stays, so it's always a good idea to ask about their pricing options. You should also take into account additional costs such as equipment rental, gym membership fees, and the cost of medical insurance, which is recommended for anyone planning to train in Muay Thai.

Overall, the cost of living in Thailand is relatively affordable compared to many Western countries. However, it's important to budget carefully to ensure that you can cover all of your expenses during your Muay Thai holiday. By doing some research and planning ahead, you can enjoy the experience of a lifetime without breaking the bank.

Training Muay Thai in Thailand can be a rewarding and transformative experience. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced fighter, there are gyms and trainers available to suit your needs. However, it's important to consider the cost of living in Thailand before embarking on this journey. By budgeting carefully and planning ahead, you can make the most of your Muay Thai holiday and return home with a newfound sense of strength and confidence.
